I bought NME today, the first time in over forty years, to read the Morrissey interview and see what all the fuss was about.

Of course NME were behaving perfectly objectively on this story, as witnessed by the measured tone of the front page headlines - Bigmouth Strikes Again.

This whole thing is a storm in a teacup and if Morrissey's curmudgeonly, 'fings ain't what they used to be',  remarks make him a racist then, frankly, we're all fucked.

See Clarwil's piece in LibCon for some common sense.
